About Croft Head

This water was aquired in 1993 when Littleborough anglers decided to 'call it a day'
A leak had caused the water to drain and all the fish had been removed.
This Society bought the surrounding field and project managed the complete restoration of the water.
Many tons of silt were removed,fishing platforms built,silt traps constructed and a car park created.
The water was restocked with lots of fish -and reopened for fishing in 1994.
This water is now one of our best fisheries.
Please see before and after photos on the right.
